Little background info. I have had my home telephone number in my name only for 11 years. We have moved within the same area 3 times but always kept the same phone number. We have had MCI long distance for at least 7 or 8 of those years and any long distance calls we make from home are automatically included in our BellSouth bill on the MCI page. I have my long distance service "locked" so it can't be changed to another company by anyone else but me. A few months ago I started getting phone calls at my home phone number from AT&T telling me that I had a bill from 2001 for over $200 for long distance service that was unpaid. We never HAD AT&T and even checked with BellSouth to make sure of that. We told AT&T that it couldn't be our bill but to make sure to please provide us with the numbers called so we could see if they were numbers that we may have called. AT&T told us that because the bill was so old that they could not pull the numbers up. We asked if this could be a calling card or a cell phone bill and they assured us it was "connected with our home phone number". It is to the point of being RIDICULOUS. They call every single day multiple times a day - even from a local number - and are getting very rude. I told them if they could prove the bill was mine then I would pay it but that bill IS NOT MINE! Well today we get a statement in the mail from AT&T for $139.29 (not the $200+ of the other bills) that reflected a "payment received" on 9/26 and then a "payment reversal due to NSF" on 10/6. WHAT??? We didn't pay the bill so how could there be a payment made for an amount that is not even the amount they told us? Sorry this is so long but I am at my wit's end. This is on my credit report and I want it OFF. What do I need to do to make these people leave us alone and get this off my credit report? What ARE my rights here? If this were my bill I would pay it but it isn't. Are they just lowering the amount hoping I will pay it to shut them up?
